Your body may be a temple but, much like the sticking door at the Big Deal office, it will still require the occasional spot of oil and bout of maintenance work.
Give your temple some TLC with today’s Big Deal on a pamper package at The Residence at Park Circus in Glasgow’s West End.
The Residence is a specialist Pilates and Yoga centre with day spa, set in a converted four storey Victorian townhouse near Woodlands Road and Kelvingrove Park, just 5 minutes from Sauchiehall Street.
The surroundings may be grand but there is no standing on ceremony at The Residence. It’s simply a deluxe environment in which to relax, be pampered, meet friends and take advantage of the excellent health and wellbeing services on offer.
The team at The Residence are particularly enthusiastic about the new Pilates Reformer classes they have started to offer.
Using state of the art new equipment which has just been delivered, Pilates Reformer classes lengthen and strengthen muscles using a system of springs and resistance – a complete all over body work out.
Today’s Big Deal comes in two versions. Option one is a choice of 2 treatments from:
A Swedish back, neck & shoulder massage; hot stone massage; Shellac manicure; waxing package (choose any two areas from lower leg, upper leg, basic bikini, brow, upper lip).
After your treatments, you can relax in The Lounge at The Residence with a cream tea – comprising a scone with clotted cream & strawberry conserve, tea or coffee and a glass of chilled Prosecco, it’s the perfect way to unwind.
Spa treatments can be booked Thu-Sun, 10am-5pm, subject to spa availability.
Choice of classes
Option two includes all of the treats and treatments of option one but also includes three passes to any of the following classes at The Residence:
Pilates Reformer; mat-based Pilates; Ballet Pilates Fusion; Express Pilates; Hot Yoga; Hot Yoga Pilates Fusion or Cardiolattes.
Classes run throughout the week and last one hour; apart from Express Pilates which is a 45 minute class.
State of the art equipment
The Residence is Scotland’s largest and best equipped specialist Pilates Studio – with award winning, friendly instructors and an array of Pilates, Yoga and Fusion classes.
Today’s Big Deal marks the launch of the arrival of the specialist Pilates Reformer equipment to The Residence – and allows you to feel their benefits for yourself.
Target specific muscle groups
The Pilates Reformer is a piece of specialist Pilates equipment used to incorporate the Pilates exercise technique for a challenging and intense workout. Springs, leverage and body weight are used as resistance while performing movements targeting specific muscle groups. Workouts consist of controlled, flowing movements working your muscles through a full range of motion. The reformer adds increased resistance to the movement. By working to overcome this resistance, training results in increased fitness levels.
The reformer improves strength and flexibility, strength with balance, upper body strength, lower body balance and stability. It’s a total body workout. As Joseph Pilates, the founder of Pilates, famously said, ‘In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you’ll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a whole new body’.
